KQED 9: Sun, Oct 4, 2015 -- 5:30 PM

NewsHour Weekend examines voting regulations in North Carolina. The state has had some of the most progressive voting practices in the US and one of the highest voter turnouts in the country. But in the wake of the Supreme Court's decision to overturn a key part of the Voting Rights Act, the Republican-led state legislature passed a law instituting voter ID and overturning many of the voting procedures civil rights leaders spent years trying win. Now, the law is being challenged in federal court, to weigh whether it disenfranchises minorities who have been fighting for their voting rights for decades. Jeff Greenfield reports.

KQED 9: Sat, Oct 3, 2015 -- 5:30 PM

As part of 2015 American Graduate Day that focuses on keeping students on the path to graduation, NewsHour Weekend explores the education of teachers. As the US grapples with public education reform, an AmeriCorps service program in Boston is being heralded as a model for training teachers. The Boston Teacher Residency program recruits future teachers and places them in schools to provide practical experience. And it's working. Other cities have begun to take notice in this unique path for teacher training. Christopher Booker reports.
Also, NewsHour Weekend examines another approach to education, known as blended learning. This technique replaces a portion of traditional face-to-face instruction with web-based online learning. In particular, the computerized curriculum helps at-risk students learn at the own pace with the aim of inspiring more confidence toward scholastic achievement. Hari Sreenivasan reports.
